class, to grow this economy from the middle class out, from the 99% out, if you will, and mitt romney's going into this with a deficit, and obviously will have to answer his 47% comment because that's what voters are left with. but i will say this. mitt romney has certainly had a lot more practice in the last couple of years, as amy pointed out, and he is the one who has the greatest expectations, because even republicans are saying that if he does not have a game-changing night, that the trajectory of this campaign will not change, and that's going to be bad for romney campaign. >> right. each of them have really sort of gotten their practice in, one could argue. we talked wins and losses, expectations. both sides basically trying to play it down a little buiit. it's better to manage expectations than to not accomplish expectations. what do you think the voters are expecting? are they expecting something civilized? are they expecting attacks from each separate candidate, amy? >> i think they're expecting their issues to be addressed and to be addressed thoroughly and convincingly. bu
